OIL SLUDGE AT 120K! READ THE FORUMS

ReviewSure I took a risk buying this car used at 119,500 miles, but all the reviews online were pretty good for this car.
400 miles later I started having oil pressure lights and engine lights come on and when I googled the symptoms, I got all kinds of bad news about the car.
Oil sludge is a problem and if it's not fixed fast, the engine will need replacing.
I'm not even sure if there really is a fix for this problem.
If you have this car, get it checked right away.
These reviews make it look like a good car, but be careful and read the forums to see what will really happen if you purchase/own this car.
2002 also has this problem
